Dynamic Interplay ~ Asana & Pranayama

“Practice of asanas is very important to derive benefits of pranayama. Once the body is under control, the spine firm and nerves calm, one can start pranayama.”- BKS Iyengar

Open to all levels - Join David for an afternoon workshop to experience how asana (yogic postures) create the foundation for pranayama (yogic breathing) by deepening our capacity for generating and distributing bioenergy (prana) through out our bodies.

The workshop will also bring clarity to how pranayama infuses our asana practice energetically while taking us further along the path of Yoga.

This rejuvenative 3-hour workshop will include asana and basic pranayama techniques.

w/ John Smith


Mysore Self-Practice:

Mon - Thurs 7-9am

Led Primary Series: Sundays 8-10am


The Mysore Room gives students a very special experience, where John guides students one by one in the ashtanga-vinyasa system of yoga.

The self-practice context offers a quiet, clear refuge for students to come together in practice at their own individual pace and rhythm.


John Smith is a long-time student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India and maintains a caring, attentive presence in the Mysore practice room.


John's special ability to work individually w/ students in an encouraging and challenging way is creating a strong gravity for local practitioners to develop in the Vinyasa Method. Come see what this practice is about...
